RComedy / Sundance Film Series / Oct 31, 2003 (Limited)

Created as an ode to the Ross Hunter-style big-screen soaps of the 60's, "Die Mommie Die!" features theater veteran Busch as the fallen pop diva, Angela Arden. When Angela's husband, Sol (Hall), discovers that she's having an affair with tennis pro, gigolo and failed actor Tony Parker (Priestley), Angela calculatedly offs him with a poisoned suppository, or does she? What follows is a hilarious mixture of whodunits and double-crossings involving Bootsie (Conroy), the ill-fated family maid, Edith (Lyonne), Angela and Sol's spoiled, vampy daughter and Lance (Sands), their boy-toy son.

The cast includes Charles Busch, Frances Conroy, Philip Baker Hall, Natasha Lyonne, Jason Priestley and Stark Sands.
